One of the Best Duels I've Ever Seen
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This DVD is so cool. It is the third Yugi Vs. Kaiba duel and the premiere of the Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon. Pegasus tells Kaiba that he needs to defeat Yugi in a duel to rescue Mokuba's soul (which he is unhappy about). When Yugi and co. get to the castle, Kaiba is blocking the way. So they duel with the duel disks and Kaiba summons the Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon (after about 10 turns). Later Yugi gets an army of Three Toed Hairballs (aka.Kuriboh). I won't tell you who wins so buy the DVD or watch the episode on Kids WB to find out (even if you already know buy it anyway)."
Good, but overpriced and a horrible dub

"Don't be fooled by my review title; I am literally obsessed with the show. It was this obsession of mine that led me to the original Japanese DVDs. I'd like to comment that this DVD is a ripoff. You're paying $17.95 for what, three episodes? I don't think so, EVEN though these three episodes are some of the best ones of the show. My average spending on Yu-gi-Oh DVDs is $30 for 31 episodes. This means that I've spent about $210 for 171 episodes overall. (In other words, it's about $.82 per episode, not including the two or three hour-long specials, as opposed to the $5.98 per episode you're paying for these DVDs.) Personally, if you're over fifteen, I'd recommend the original Japanese DVDs as opposed to the American ones. (Don't worry, the subtitles are good on all of the boxed sets except for the first one, which has mediocre subtitles that can be confusing since the translator was not too good. The other sets have subtitles that are much better.) With the Japanese DVDs, you get better voice acting (it sucks in the American version, you just can't tell until you've seen the original), more character development, a plot that makes more sense (yes, they chop up the plot before they send animes to America), and you get to see what happens before everyone else (I'm three or four seasons ahead of you guys. Hee hee!). If you're under fifteen, then you might want to stick with these DVDs, since the original version has more violence and cursing. (Oh no! The same smut that we see on TV everyday in a cartoon! The horror! 0_o) Now, to the actual story. The three episodes on this DVD are some of my personal favorites and I'd recommend them to anyone who enjoys some Seto vs. Yugi duels. (Just wait one more season, guys. You don't know what you're missing.) This particular duel starts after Pegasus, the creator of Duel Monsters and the antagonist of the story (this season, anyway), offers Seto a deal: If Seto can defeat Yugi, he will earn the honor to duel with Pegasus and therefore have a shot at saving Mokuba, his younger brother. Seto then challenges Yugi, who accepts. The duel rages back and forth with neither side showing any mercy until Seto makes the duel dangerous and life-threatening by displaying how desperate he is to win. What happens next? Not telling! ^__^ This duel is also the introduction of Seto's ultimate monster: The Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon, a monster that I love.
So, these episodes are excellent, but they are overpriced and the dub isn't as good as the original. Still, this DVD set would make an excellent addition to any Yugioh fan's collection. Whatever you decide, have fun and happy dueling! .."

"After reading some of the ridiculous reviews for this DVD below, I just had to help this item out. The episodes are good. The voice acting is excellent. To be quite honest, I don't think too much of the Japanese episodes. The dialogue is way too slow and boring.
I have no idea when prebuscent kids thought they were such experts on dubbing, but trust me, the episodes aren't as bad as they claim it to be. Give it a shot and make *your* own decisions about it."

"At first I didin't really like Yu-Gi_oh! but now since I've watched it a little more I like the show now. First I got intrested in collecting the cards then I watched the show and said to myself hey this isn't so bad. To me Yu-Gi-oh! is a safe show for kids like me! But let me tell you all the episodes go from bad to worse. Along the series every epsode has to have something bad happen in it like Pegesus captured Yugi's grandfather's soul or in the new episodes Merick captured Yugi's friends. But on the last episode it's a good ending. So the series is not so bad and it's pretty cool!:)"
